NYC’s well-established dj/producer and label owner, François K. releases his long awaited new single on Wave's sub label Deep Space Media. 'Road of Life' captivates you with its deep melodic riffs and its unique mid-tempo electronic dub. Quiet Village adds their signature flavor with 4/4 house beat emphasizing
the original's hypnotic elements!

Osunlade - “Road of Life Is simply Hypnotic! My head hurts from the constant head nods and bangin against the wall of this dub! Great Work!”

Jerome Sydenham - “Thanks for the QV remix. I played it at Panorama bar in Berlin last weekend, wicked!”

Neil Quigley - “I actually picked this up on Beatport the otherday, both beautiful pieces of music. The Quiet Village is the one I would play out, industrial yet still soulful.”

Dubfire - “Hey! I LOVE this! Thnx!!!”

Tedd Patterson - "Road Of Life is perfect for my early evening set. Its as sexy as it is hynotic. The Quiet Village mix compliments it well and adds the perfect edge for prime time.”

Label chief and king of NYC late night mythology, François K. returns with a bit of his patented Deep Space madness. Starting with a tempo reminiscent of a 45 played at 33 1/3, a delicate plucked bell-synth bathed in a medium hall reverb leaves ethereal impressions and late night energy. As the melody drops a minor third, another enchanting counter melody joins the mix and adds a rather divine legato style. After the lead fades out, a percussive interlude full of syncopated noise hits develops; leaving room for a break that reintroduces the main vibe and instills a sense of resolution.

Side B carries a remix from Quiet Village, who’s performance at FK‘s Deep Space has received raving reviews. Taking a more club-hyped approach, this rework pounds forward with a massive rumbling kick drum and an underlying noise wash. The main lead gets some serious filter and delay treatment making for a more progressive drive and a versatile dancefloor hook. Tweaking things a bit at the break, the melody morphs into a sort of Latin-minded groove with portamento glides, edited accents and sharper hits. Still keeping the passion and charm alive, the new demise accents François’ tasteful tune while
boasting contemporary excitement. Built with years of experience rocking the world over, this installment in the evolving story of FK’s studio sound brings enlightenment through the use of engineered electronics and massive audio constructs.
